[cheers and applause] >> but some senators have their own plan. >> we need to deal with this. we need to modernize our illegal immigration system is.

4:03pm
of senators released their idea. but one of those republican senators telling fox news the president could end up hurting the cause. mr. obama flew to las vegas today to unveil his plan. one of the major sticking points is border security. now, just yesterday the white house enforcement has never been better but today the president called for making more improvements. and he played up the similarities between his idea and the senator's proposal. >> the time has come for common sense, comprehensive, immigration reform. >> for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. >> but analysts say there are differences, unlike the senators, the president did not say the feds have to improve border security before illegal immigrants can take a so-called path of citizenship. this morning on america's newsroom, one of those senators republican marco rubio telling me that is a deal him. >> it seems like he is starting to start a bidding war. we are not going to do an
4:04pm
immigration bidding war. we have a set of principles, i have been talking about them for a number of weeks. fortunately there is a group of senate democrats and republicans here who had similar principles who were able to join together to announce those prince tell p. pells. now we are going to start working on turning those principles into a bill, a law. at some point that's just a starting point because we have all the other members of the senate have their opinions. the president cease this as an opportunity toe move this issue to the left to try to outbid us on immigration. i think that speaks poorly for the future outcome of this entire endeavor. this is about solving a problem. >> it won't be easy either. saying we hope the president is careful not to drag the debate to the left and ultimately disrupt the difficult work that is ahead in the house and at senate. wendell goler live in las vegas traveling today with the president, good evening, wendell. the president rewrote his speech after he heard the senators of yesterday. what do you know of that? well, bill, he had originally planned a more scolding
4:05pm
speech. a call for senators or members of congress to get to work on immigration reform. instead he congratulated the 8 members of the senate on a bipartisan proposal aids say is close enough to the president's principles that he is don't for now to let congress take the lead instead of submitting his own legislation. the key to it all was the apparent republican change of heart on a path to citizenship for people in this country illegally. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the use set that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> the president's proposal family immigration laws to gay couples. he says couples shouldn't have to choose between the one they love and the country they love, bill? >> after my interview earlier this morning, senator rubleio had more to say about this on
4:06pm
the floor of the senate, what was said there. >> the senator would like to have heard the president call for a guest worker program. he would like to have heard him make tighter border security a precondition for that path to citizenship for people in the country illegally. as far as he is concerned, the president's path is a little too easy. >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war war who see who comes up with the easiest, quickest and cheapest path way to green card possible, this thing is not going to go well, folks. >> now, white house officials frankly don't think republicans can sell an immigration plan to the latino community that the president doesn't party. republicans on the other hand are concerned if mr. obama is tied too closely to the plan they might not be able to sell it to other republicans, bill? >> it can get tricky. live in las vegas tonight. fox news weather alert now. we are monitoring dangerous conditions that could bring large hail and strong winds,
4:07pm

4:15pm

"on the record" with greta 7:00 eastern. 7:00 on the west coast. the u.s. army now trying to determine the origin of a surface-to-air missile launcher. it turned up not on battlefield but a gun buy back program in seattle. the mayor says police there recovered more than 700 guns along with the stinger missile launch tube. detectives say somebody already used it so it cannot be used again. when in working order they are cable of shooting down a passenger jet. in fact, this is a photo of taliban militants with stinger missile launchers in front of a plane they hijacked in afghanistan back in the 1990s. trace gallagher is live now in our west coast newsroom tonight with more on this. any theories on where this missile launch tube came from, trace? >> you know, bill, this could be nothing more than military
4:16pm
waste, which is why as you said the military is now involved, trying to trace the serial numbers to come up with the origin now. the bigger concern here is that these might have been smuggled in and experts point out that a tube with the missile can be smuggled as easily as a tube without a missile. as we know, thousands of these things are missing in libya. and afghanistan and even empty tubes may not be harmless. listen. >> theoretically these things are shoot and forget and one time use weapons. aim at a target. you fire it,ened the actual component, the shell, the tube becomes inoperable. not quite so true. you can actually have someone who understands the technology who would find a way to basically reengineer or re-use one of these tubes. >> yeah, use it all over again. the military has inspected the launcher but the serial numbers may take a while for them to trace are a, bill. >> bill: we just mentioned that these missiles, if capable could take out a
4:17pm
passenger jet. how accurate are they, trace? >> well, they are very accurate. these are heat seeking missiles which means they actually lock on to the exhaust. the heat from the exhaust that comes from the aircraft, which makes them very accurate to anything below 11,000 feet, add to that the fact that these things are very light. they weigh about 35 pounds, which makes them as you see right there, very portable. military aircraft have ways to divert these types of missiles, unfortunately civilian aircraft like passenger jets do not have a way to avoid them at all. bill? >> bill: trace gallagher from l.a. tonight. an extreme sports athlete clinging to life tonight after a nasty snowmobile accident at the winter x games in aspen, colorado. the latest on his condition and new questions about the safety of these sports. plus, it's not niagara falls but the dare devil nic woe linda is at it again. taking his high wire act

fighting for his life tonight. five days after a brutal crash at the winter x games in as spin. one of several bad crashes we have seen the past few days.
4:22pm
the injured writer's grandfather telling "the denver post" today, it's almost certain he is not going to make it. caleb moore was attempting a back flip when this happened. his snowmobile ski caught the snow. he slammed in the landing and the 450-pound machine crashed right over the top of him. at first he appeared to be okay. but after he was able to walk off the course medics rushed him to the hospital in colorado. that's where doctors found bleeding around his heart which reportedly caused complications in his brain. meanwhile caleb's brother colton separated his pelvis racing on the very same course. and on sunday another rider lost control of his snowmobile after a jump. we showed you this last night. the machine throttle somehow got stuck and zoomed toward a crowd of spectators. fortunately a net caught it just before it went into fans nearby. "the fox report's" chief correspondent jonathan hunt
4:23pm
more with this night? do we know what went wrong. >> frankly, bill it, looks like a simple and yet disastrous mistake. 25-year-old caleb moore had landed this kind of trick many times before in practice and apparently in competition. trying to do a back flip. can you see there in slow motion. came up short. the skis went into the slope. he flipped over the handle bars, that 450-pound machine came down right on top of him. just a simple mistake but a huge weight landing on him. his mother said in a statement on the moore brothers facebook page today quote so many of you, hundreds of you have sent words of love, encouragement and scripture. some of you don't even know us or the boys personally. i can't possible respond to all of you individually, but please know that your words are being read. thank you, thank you from wade, caleb's father, michelle, his mother and colton his brother, who was also injured.
4:24pm
we just heard from a family spokeswoman this evening that there is no change in caleb's condition. he remains critical. the family that spokeswoman says remains strong. >> bill: you wonder if you have a series of events like this if it's coincidence or wonder how common it is in this sport. >> surprisingly not psychiatry common actually. there are always accidents in the x games but there are rarely these sort of serious, life-threatening accidents. and, in fact, there has never been a fatality in the exfrmt games competition. we hope this does not turn into one, of course. there have been fatalitying in these kind of extreme sports. just a year ago, almost to the day, sarah berk a freestyle ski from her canada died after suffering a traumatic brain injury when she was in practice in park city, utah for the x games. two years before that on the same half pike in park city, snowboarder kevin pierce injured himself very badly. fell into a coma.
4:25pm
two years of recovery for him to learn to walk. and talk again. but espn, which televises the x games released a statement today saying in part we have worked closely on safety issues. with athletes, course designers and other course experts for 18 years of x games. still, when the world's best compete at the highest level in any sport, risks remain. caleb is a four time x games medalists who fell short on his rotation on a move he has landed several times previously. it is perhaps precisely, bill, because these kind of injuries devastating injuries are so infrequent that we take so much notice when they do happen. >> bill: it's amazing things to watch x games, too. they grow in popularity each and every year. our best to caleb. jonathan, thank you. the guy who walked across niagara falls tight rope last summer. remember that in june. put on a show for his hometown. sarasota, florida, famed dare devil nic wolinda complete add

this is the fox report. we don't have to deal with the debt ceiling again until august. that's what the treasury department is telling members of congress now. last week house republicans agreed to suspend the limit on how much the feds can borrow until the month of may. but treasury officials say they can take extraordinary measures to move around some money and keep paying the bills a bit longer. in the meantime. the two parties are still going at it over government spending. mike emanuel live on capitol hill tonight. republicans hammering democrats over that growing national debt, mike. >> well, that's right, bill. $16 trillion and counting. republicans say you cannot tax the wealthy enough to make a dent. a leading senate republican says president obama has talked a good game but has not delivered. >> when it comes to reducing the debt as we would say out in the west, the president has been all hat and no cowboy. in other words, he has been all talk and no action. what we have seen over the past four years as trillion-dollar deficits every single year, the debt has

4:34pm
spending cuts and revenue. >> say spending cuts and more revenue. there is your showdown, bill. >> there it is indeed. mike emanuel from capitol hill tonight. the office in charge of shutting down guantanamo bay is shutting down itself. that's according to a state department memo indicating the department has reassigned the official who ran the office and will not replace him. four years ago this month, president obama signed an executive order to close gitmo within a year. since then congress has blocked funding for transferring any detainees to the u.s. catherine herridge is tracking that live in our d.c. newsroom tonight. this announcement was a bit under the radar, was it not, catherine. >> it was. the point man for transfer detainees to other countries has been assigned and no replacement identified. fox news was told, quote: the administration has made clear
4:35pm
that closing the guantanamo bay is in the interest of our national security and continuing its efforts to close it as for the failure to close the detention camps within a stated year. human rights groups say they are deeply disappointed with the president's lack of leadership, adding: >> i think that daniel freed leaving his position with no one replacing him, really sends a message to the white house that the state department can't implement the president's policy because the president doesn't have one. >> since 2009. the number of detainees has dropped from 242 to 166. but at the same time, those suspected or confirmed of getting back into terrorism has jumped to nearly 1 in three detainees that's 28%, bill. >> remarkable why this is happening. there is a hearing at get know this week for one of the 9/11 suspects. right? >> that's right. observers at the military court in guantanamo tell fox there is a bizarre episode when the audio and video feeds of the proceedings were suddenly cut. the interruption which apparently took the judge,
